Which visa do I need?

Find out which type of visa you need.

Types of visa

You might not be able to enrol until you've made a Student visa application. It depends what type of visa you have if you're already in the UK.

A Student visa application requires a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). NTU will assign a CAS to you.

To be able to complete your enrolment and start your studies at NTU, you must provide:

  • copies of your current visa and passport, or
  • evidence that you have made the correct visa application.

Contact us for further guidance if:

  • the type of visa you hold isn't listed below
  • you're unsure if your current immigration permission allows you to study at NTU.

If you're an EU or EEA student, refer to our information for EU and EEA students.

Courses delivered by Confetti and NTU in Mansfield are not covered by NTU’s sponsor licence. It is not possible to apply for a Student visa for those courses.
